I’m joining up once again with all the Mass fashionistas at Fine Linen and Purple for What I Wore Sunday. I’ve been mentally prepping this post all day because today was the first day I got to wear my new Land’s End dress. Unfortunately, everything went downhill this morning when the first words out of my husband’s mouth, after seeing me in it, weren’t “You’re beautiful.” I won’t go into details, but we reconciled and everyone else at church gave me oodles of compliments. I’m not going to turn this into a bellyache of a post where I fish for compliments because inside I’m still seething and/or sobbing. I’m not. Totally. It’s fine. Now look at this awesome dress I got on sale from Land’s End with a gift card! (There may or may not be duck blood stains on the front.)
Dress: Land’s End
Tank top: Old Navy
Shoes: (They were not on the bed; not allowed in this house!) Nude peep toe wedges, Target
Usual watch and ponytail.
Beverage: Fulton’s Harvest
Land’s End has a lot of really cute, really expensive dresses right now. I’m hoping for another giftcard at Christmas because this dress is the most comfortable thing I’ve worn all week. And the pattern hides a multitude of stains. Your water could break in this dress and no one would know, I’m sure of it.
We had dinner guests after Mass to celebrate the feast of Martinmas and I was whipping up duck, Pinterest potatoes and burnt cookies effortlessly, without the dress cutting into me or riding up in certain places or dropping down too low in others. And it was the perfect dress for climbing into a 15 passenger van to fasten a carseat with no threat of a tear ripping up the backside in mid buckle clip.
So you see, I don’t care whether Tony noticed how I looked or not. It doesn’t matter to me. My self-image is intact; rock solid, and unshakeable.
Now go check out the other Catholic modest hotties (or should I say ‘luke warmies’? Is it a sin to be smokin’?) at Fine Linen and Purple. I’m off to get a foot massage from the hubs.
